write about making good on obama's "keep your insurance" promise by allowing americans to shop inside the federal employees' own health business plan. i'm a former federal bureaucrat. scott, is this feasible? what are the advantages of the federal employees' health care plan? >> it's a true marketplace. you have all different kinds of plans being sold and people can actually choose the plan that they want and tailor what they want to receive. the amazing thing is that the plans are actually cheaper than the obama care plans even without the federal subsidies. if you take the list price of a plan in that system and try to compare it to a comparable obama care in the same market, you'll see that there are cheaper options in the federal plan. my argument is this, people who lost their insurance, who were kicked off their insurance, rather than forcing them into obama care, let them shop in the federal program. let them have access to a real marketplace. >> chris, thousands of plans are in this federal employees' health care plan. it's whatever consumers want, the insurers are going to pr
're going to keep attacking the idea of obama care. they're going to keep saying it doesn't work. they'd rather deal with this as an abstraction. as an ideological pinata they can keep swinging at because they know 30% of the public will be with them. they're going to have a hard time attacking the particulars and harder time saying we're going to take those particulars away. where has ted cruz been with his repeal crusade the last couple days? i don't see him out there saying we must end this and go back to nothing. >> he's not quite as strong as he was just a few weeks ago, is he? let's look at this, michael. while the president and his team are confronting problems, the president's enemies continue to root for the worst. this is just a sampling of their reaction to the news. it includes the likes of mr. cruz. about the president's team. look at this how they're dealing with the good news from the president. this is how the bad news bears are handling it. >> i don't know how you fix the many fundamental problems of this program. >> when this website eventually gets fixed, the problem
that mrs. obama keeps close to her heart and it's very important to her. the actual theme is gather round your family, our traditions, our history. and the blue room true does honor our servicemen and there are stars for our fallen soldiers. there are also these really poignant pictures of children reconnecting with their parents as they return from the military service. >> so meaningful. jackie kennedy, i'm sure there was attention to detail there. >> i love jackie kennedy. our fashion icon. here is the secret, her christmas style was a little messy. it was even happen hazard in their private family photo, which are presidential historians give us access to. and then she liked to decorate with miniature trees and miniature ornaments. she had the first theme, a nutcracker christmas. >> fantastic. we see these photos, so candid, in the moment, celebrating that day with the kids. betty ford? what can you tell us about her? >> she went for a home spun or home made christmas. she was really trying to be frugal. but it backfired. she actually spent more money than the three previous first ladi
and mark pryor trying to make the campaigns about anything else besides obama care. when that comes up, keeping a safe distance. >> i want to bring up a quote and it's a blind quote from somebody who turned down a job from the president and said to some extent you are seeing the clinton effect. why take the risks of worging in a second obama administration when you can make $300,000 and work for hillary. this is a democrat saying this. a blind quote, here's the thing. it's stunning to read and not stunning to hear. >> it's not stunning at all in the fact that it's the way washington thinks. if you told me the president would not pass gun control, of course not. immigration we thought was something where there was potential for movement. part of this is the republicans. there is big policy visiting the republicans. that's driving this. they passed a tax increase with the president, but in general not a lot moving. things are going to move on and they are looking and talking about hillary clinton and what's going to happen then in 2017 as if he's a lame duck already. >> that doesn't help
able to keep their plans. now with the obama care website kind of sort of working, the president is making his sales pitch to the american people again. >>> also in national news, we already know the train was going too fast. now we know the engineer says he was in a daze before it derailed. what else will we learn when investigators update us this hour on that deadly train crash in the bronx? >>> and the pop culture lead. johnny's in the -- thinking about the french government charging bob dylan for inciting hate? bob dylan? the times, indeed, are a changing. good afternoon, everyone, welcome to "the lead." great to be back with you. i'm jake tapper. we'll begin with the national lead for most of the year. paula deen held the award for worst public disaster, and obama care rolled out, bad headlines, frustrated customers. during that time president obama explained, and eventually apologized. the white house claiming healthcare.gov handled 1 million visitors without major issues, the president is launching a massive three-week-long blitz to entice americans back to the website to
more reason to trust insurers than the obama administration. they're just trying to keep their heads down. >> now, instead of having an actual system making sure that the t's are crossed and is are dotted we're going on an honor system. insurers going to tell them this is how much taxpayer money i want. we're going cut checks. >> real area is in the size of the subsidies. that is where the true honor system is. there was a report issued today that says if the irs didn't have a system to check what your income is, and that is going to incentivize a lot of americans to say i didn't make that much money this year, give me a bigger check. that is where fraud is >> my head is switching just in this segment. thank you for being here. before this news broke, the president attempted to hit the reset button on his health care law. the law works. really? how does it work exactly if there is no mechanism for payment for coverage? you heard him go out there and defend the law in familiar ways. he did it when the approval rating hit a record low to cording to the average of all polls look. in the
. what? >>> president obama's famous promise, if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it, is ringing even more hollow tonight. chief national correspondent jim angle reports on new numbers that indicate just how hard replacing that plan you like may be. >> reporter: one republican said reports obama care had enrolled 29,000 people in two days this week doesn't come close to the pace they need. >> the new improved website will need to enroll close to 100,000 people per day every day this month. that's how many who selected a plan in all of october. >> reporter: others say state and federal exchanges together need to enroll 200,000 a day. that raises the prospect that people whose policies were cancelled might not be able to sign up in time to avoid a gap in coverage, especially since insurance companies are getting bogus information on who signed up. >> it's impossible for everyone that signs up by december 23rd to get coverage and to have that work through the system. >> reporter: but even for those who are able to enroll, about 50% of the plans available are narrow netwo
rollout of obama care, and not to mention the lies that they told the american people. and now take a look at this ad put out by the committee. >> if you like your insurance plan you will keep it. no one will be able to take that away from it. >> hundreds of thousands of americans whose policies don't meet the new standards are being told that their health plans are being cancelled. >> about half of the 14 million people who buy insurance on their own are not going to be able to keep the policy that they had previously. >> that is what he campaigned for. >> if you like the insurance you have, you will be able to keep it. >> so we're going to be able to stick with our plan, the answer is yes. >> if you like it, you keep it. >> if you have your health insurance and you like it i want to be sure that whatever we do doesn't interfere with that. >> so now i'm being forced to choose from a bunch of new plans that i don't want to choose from, that are all more expensive. >> call it what it is, a broken health care plan, it is broken. >> and here with reaction are republican strategist and fox new
the obama care website or at least keep it working smoothly for the vast majority of users thrk white house is reporting 375,000 people have visited healthcare.gov today. meantime, white house press secretary jay carney said the president is pleased with the progress but says the work is not finished. we will talk about this a little later with this fascinating opinion piece that dr. sanjay gupta has written for cnn.com. that's next hour. >>> still ahead, arrested for a good deed. find out why a man faces legal trouble after giving away -- look at that, that is cash. hundreds of thousands of dollars here. hundreds of dollars, i should correct myself, to holiday shoppers. that's not nothing. we're on the case. >>> plus, could drag racing have led to the death of actor paul walker? coming up next, an eyewitness on the scene of the deadly crash, talks about what he saw minutes before that fatal accident. [ male announcer ] research suggests cell health plays a key role throughout our lives. one a day men's 50+ is a complete multivitamin designed for men's health concerns as we age. with 7 anti
the obama care website doesn't work or to say to the president you have been telling americans they can keep their insurance but it is not true. you have to stop. either they are not having the conversations or they are having them and disseminating false information anyway. either way, they have a culture that disseminates and encourages dishonesty. >> if what they are saying isn't true and they discussed it with the president it is a bald-faced lie. >> yeah. >> if he told them, i know him. i'm related to him. i lived with him for a few years before law school it was just a lie. is it naive to be saying the white house press office wouldn't tell us bald-faced lies about such matters? >> i hope that it's not a bald-faced lie. it means nobody is telling the president these things. nobody told the president the website doesn't work. nobody told him after he said 30 times you can keep your health care plan. nobody told the president that's not true? they are not doing their jobs. it's part of the job to tell the president bad news. >> this didn't get a lot of coverage. is this a story? >> it's
the affordable care act. >> white house officials say president obama and the white house will be selling different aspects. like you can keep your kids on their insurance until they're 26 years old. you can't be discriminated against for preexisting conditions. things like that, they will sell one a day for december 23rd, for the next three weeks. back to you. adam: rich edson, thank you very much. lori: well you remember edward snowden? so after he looked potentially the most sensitive material in u.s. history, well, many people all across the world rushed to insure their mobile security. our next guest, cofounder and ceo of the security app, wicker, develop ad way for millions to encrypt the most private cell phone interactions, all kinds of data. guess what, it is free. welcome to our show. how are you doing? >> hi, lori, thanks for having me away. lori: your motto is halfway between snap chat and snowden. what do you mean by that. >> i don't know if that is our motto but those are two hot markets or tornadoes we're snuck in the -- stuck in the middle of now. snap chat is my competito
, there is really no reason to talk about the cover-up, benghazi, but they will keep talking about it. these right wing stories will continue ad nauseum, because that is what they're going to think. >> if it were the case, that obama care just capriciously denied a toddler health care, and there is that old adage, winston churchhill, about a lie getting spread all over the world. >> and the story was already debunked before it appeared on "hannity." and fox pushed this other story within the last few days about a cancer survivor who was going to not have insurance, and just basically die if he -- you know, the cancer came back. and they had him on, and an insurance broker got in touch with him off the air and said wow, you still have insurance. you didn't get cancelled. again, that story did not hold up. fox has not addressed that issue. >> there is something kind of sick about it. these are actual people lying. people are defending these stories, i don't begrudge them anything. but to sort of manipulate people this way, scaring people as we are trying to just clear away the confusion. again, i sa
. it is not working for the democrats. the number one group that is disenfranchised from obama are women, yet he is sensitive to us? please. >> this about todd a can. you know, republicans should not have nominated an idiot for the senate in missouri last year. let's keep in mind, his campaign got support. a pro player mechanical pact ran ads in favor. and so, you know, he was kind of set up by the democrats. lou: set up, -- >> in the primary. >> the primary. lou: the primary which was, of course, the thing to do if you're a democrat. they were successful, and the republicans did not have a message. now here we are a year later talking about both amen and a leader of the republican party talking in the most effectively derogatory terms imaginable about their own party and their candidates. i mean go ahead. >> you are taking this way too serious. lou: you know what, you're right. and taking it too seriously. i should not in any way expect that the leader of one major party should have this sense not to use language and the positioning of the party and himself in such a way as to give aid and comf
. >> reporter: and another promise president obama made that turned out not to be true was put in the spotlight today on "fox news sunday." did he not say, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. >> he didn't say you could have unlimited choice. >> simple yes or no. >> yes. but look, if it you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. >> reporter: also today insurance brokers are complaining they're having trouble helping their clients because of troubles at the back end of the obama care enrollment process. >> so obviously the problems from obama care are still far from resochld. but according to one architect of the health care, he says all the white house needs is good old-fashioned public relations. our political insiders will weigh in on that. and i'll ask them a good question, what exactly would work at this point in the way of pr. tweet your thoughts to us and we'll include some of your thoughts on the show. >>> and thousands are gathered to remember paul walker, the "fast & furious" star killed in a fiery crash. tonight, what authoriti
's a trillion dollar subsidy. what is this, it's a bribe to keep them from leaving the program. if they leave the program, see, there is no program. >> the trouble with this story is that obama care may go down before it even starts up. i think that's the issue. i think that's why they're rushing this past week the obama cons to open up the regulations and to lower the thresholds so they can start putting money into the insurance companies. because we know, we know that the youth, young people are not going to sign up in droves. they're going to get far less than that. therefore, we have a problem right from the get go. >> we don't know where that's going to go, but we do think it's going to go up. let me -- >> which is going to go up? >> we seal the young people numbers go up. >> really? we had four college kids on the program last night. i didn't hear that. >> well, the world hasn't ended despite the broken website. let's remember one thing, you mentioned rushing things. let's do the opposite. go back ten years, 2003. the republicans did what? they voted for a risk corridor in president bus
at you and the politicians keep rates low the order to buy votes. charles: do you talk to your friends and liberal kids, the obama administration pocketed $41 billion in interest of these loans as they said we are going to get rid of them, vote for me, you can't have it both ways, making tons of money. >> they continue to vote for these policies. never have we seen again degeneration so immediately affected by the policies they voted for themselves twice. you saw young people vote for obama and now they're being negatively affected by the same policies almost immediately. stuart: isn't it obvious kids in college saddled with massive debt and don't have a good job probably when they walk out university boards. are they not beginning to see politics in a different light? >> that would be the common sense way of looking at it but on college campuses we see politicians frame it in ways of social issues. that is the way it was in the election cycle but these young people in 2012, look at obamacare. we see policies so quickly turned against the generation that voted for them in 2012 and you
